12/22/13 85 W, 1 I - + 5 - 1 1957 Ford/Oren Found on Lead Mine Road


We were alerted yesterday of this old beauty that's presently parked at Greystone Village Shopping Center on Lead Mine Road at Sawmill Road. It's a 1957 Ford/Oren of unknown origin. Lettered for Cumberland County Retired Firefighters. Maybe readers can help. Might be a great discussion question, as well. How many Oren engines served in our state? Just don't get me started on another data table or photo collage! See more pictures.
 





Can anyone pick out the gismo valve on the pump?

From an Oren buff:

Many thanks!!!!! I am familiar with this one. Originally Hobgood VFD, in 1996 acquired & repainted by Mr. Dan Eberhardt for the Cumberland Valley Firefighter’s Association. In September of 2011 it was for sale on Ebay and sold to Mr. Andy Anderson in Fayetteville. Last I heard, July of this year, he was trying to sell it. It had been stored outside since he bought it.
